When the weather is lovely and warm, keepers take the koalas out of their special heated enclosures to spend time in an outdoor amphitheatre at the Zoo, complete with climbing frames and eucalyptus leaves. Important to get their vitamin D from sunlight, the koalas also enjoy the sights and sounds of the Zoo.

Yooranah is a male koala joey born to mother Alinga and father Goonaroo in May 2013. In late 2013 he first emerged from the pouch. Edinburgh Zoo now has four koalas and is the only place in the UK where you can see them. Yooranah is the only koala joey EVER to be born in the UK.
